iPad mini 6 Review — This Changes EVERYTHING!
The newly redesigned iPad mini isn’t an iPad Pro mini. It’s an iPad Air mini. Which is cool, because the original iPad Air was literally an iPad mini biggie. Point being, the mini and the Air, the Air and the mini, they’ve mostly been in lockstep over the last many years. Mostly. This year, the mini is playing catch up… but also one up.
It’s getting almost all the features of Apple’s sleekest iPad — bigger, edge to edge display, but candy-colored shells, if not as many colors, Touch ID in the Power button, USB-C, stereo landscape speakers, Apple Pencil 2, if no Magic Keyboard mini, Sub-6 5G, if no mmWave, but also rocking a new A15 chipset and Center-Stage capable front camera.
But, in addition to losing the Home button, it’s also lost its headphone jack, and while it’s the most feature-packed iPad mini ever, it’s also the most expensive, starting at the same 64GB, but now priced at $499. So, is Apple’s biggest mini worth it?
